The Local Gardener Newspaper is the UK’s online horticulture tabloid.

Excerpts from the main news stories are posted on twitter and other social media.

Local Gardener readership therefore increases and it follows that so does our directories’ exposure.

Local Gardener readers regularly access the directories as a trusted source of horticulture based contractors and suppliers.


Over 80% of Local Gardener visitors are decision makers

Local Gardener visitors are looking at our site to help them make a decision on buying a product or service.
